Ruby is a dynamic, open-source programming language known for its simplicity, elegance, and focus on developer happiness. Created by Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto in 1995, it is designed to be intuitive and readable, mimicking natural language while offering high productivity.

Ruby is inherently object-oriented, treating everything as an object, which facilitates a uniform and understandable codebase. It supports dynamic typing and employs "duck typing" for more flexible coding patterns.

A notable aspect of Ruby is its principle of "Convention over Configuration," streamlining development processes, especially within the Ruby on Rails framework. The language also introduces powerful features such as blocks, procs, and lambdas for handling anonymous functions, alongside mixins for code reusability without the complexities of multiple inheritances.

With automatic garbage collection and tools like IRB for interactive programming, Ruby simplifies memory management and testing. Embraced for its broad library, versatile features, and a community embodying kindness, Ruby remains a popular choice for web applications, scripting, and automation tasks.
